Scattered showers and storms are possible through mid afternoon. Don't forget the rain boots or the umbrella if you're heading out to do some Christmas shopping! All this wet weather is occurring out ahead of a cold front that is sliding across the region today. Rainfall accumulations could reach an inch in some locales. Rain chances go way down after lunch.
Maximum readings will hit the low 70s as the warm/moist flow continues to surge in from the Gulf. The front will exit the region this evening, with slightly cooler air to follow. Tomorrow morning we'll wake up in the upper 40s with daytime highs reaching the upper 60s.
A more substantial front swings through Thursday morning. It'll bring rainstorms, but in it's wake cold Canadian air is set to pour in. Morning temps on Friday will be at the freezing mark (32 degrees), with afternoon readings in the mid 50s. By Saturday we drop into the sub-freezing zone (30 degrees in town) with inland areas dipping into the upper 20s. Get the heavy coats ready for later this week!
